Clinton's 'inevitability' is kaput

The so-called "inevitability" of Hillary Clinton's nomination is now a thing of the past. Was it ever real?

The momentum Barack Obama is riding by virtue of his clearcut win in Iowa, and the speech he gave afterward, looks genuine and strong.

The news out of Iowa is that "change" is what the people want. Even the Republicans in Iowa seem to have said the same thing by handing Mike Huckabee the victory.

It won't be easy for Clinton to make herself over into what might appear as an agent of change in the next month. Her campaign is in trouble because she's been selling her "experience" as more important than change. Now all that experience she's been touting could prove to be her undoing, because the voters may see it as baggage.
